Chandigarh: The 'Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra' is set to begin in Haryana from Thursday with the aim of spreading awareness among people about various welfare schemes implemented by both the Central and state governments.

Each district will have a nodal officer responsible for coordinating the Yatra activities. The vans would be equipped with promotional material, films, and digital displays to effectively communicate the government's achievements and policies.
